This book contains the heart of Barry Long's spiritual teaching and offers practical ways to be free of the 'unhappy body', or painful self, which lives inside all of us. It describes the causes and effects of unhappiness in us and the world at large, the meaning of karma and what happens if we take our unhappiness with us when we die. The spiritual process is like 'dying for life'. Barry Long shows us how to face all our difficulties and how to live joyously, according to the law of life. Many readers have compared this book to Eckhart Tolle's bestseller The Power of Now.
How to be free of unhappiness in an unhappy world. It can be done!
The earth awaits a revolution in consciousness as day by day discontent grows around the world. But unhappiness, accepted as normal, is not a natural part of life. Those willing to rid themselves of unhappiness may go through hell on earth to be free. But in them a new consciousness is born. It dawns with the discovery that only fear dies.
This book contains a profound spiritual teaching which it is not at all abstract or remote but directly useful to anyone trying to look for truth in this world. Barry Long redirects our attention back to the source of all problems - ourselves. He challenges us: Why do we insist on having the right to be unhappy?
First we are shown how to deal moment-to-moment with what makes us discontented so that we can practice staying free of it. Then Barry Long examines the roots of unhappiness and how it attaches itself to us from an early age. He describes how this preoccupation with discontent is played out in the world at large, in politics and the media. There is a prophetic section on the unholy alliance of the media and the politicians - written nearly 20 years ago, but the implications of what is said here become more obvious every day. The later essays are about where responsibility lies, and why we must become more responsible for ourselves. There is a chapter about living under the Law of Life, or Karma. And the final essay in the book describes the drama of life from conception to death and beyond, and how we enter the mysteries of living and dying. This knowledge holds the secret of final liberation from the ills of the human condition.

OPIUM CULTURE The Art and Ritual of the Chinese Tradition Peter Lee
Opium. The very sound of the word conjures images of secret rooms in exotic lands where languid smokers lounge dreamily in a blue haze of fragrant poppy smoke inhaling from long bamboo pipes held over the ruby flame of the jade lamp. Yet today very little accurate information is available regarding a substance that for 300 years was central to the lives of millions of people throughout the world. In OPIUM CULTURE Peter Lee presents a fascinating narrative that covers every aspect of the art and craft of opium use. Starting with a concise account of opium's long and colourful history and the story of how it came to be smoked for pleasure in China Lee offers detailed descriptions of the growing and harvesting process; the exotic inventory of tools and paraphernalia required to smoke opium as the Chinese did; its transitions from a major herb to a narcotic that has been suppressed by the modern; and art culture philosophy pharmacology and psychology of this longstanding Asian custom. Highlighted throughout with interesting quotes from literary and artistic figures who were opium smokers such as Jean Cocteau Pablo Picasso Herman Melville and Samuel Taylor Coleridge the text is studded with gems of long forgotten opium arcane and dispels many of the persistent myths and opium and its users.
OPTIMIST CREED and Other Inspirational Classics
Discover the Life-Changing Power of Gratitude and Optimism Christian D. Larson
Contemporary research has shown that optimistic people experience longer and healthier lives, better relationships and higher incomes. Generations before such findings, however, inspirational writer, Christian D. Larson, showed an amazing grasp of the life-changing power of gratitude and optimism. Today, Larson is known worldwide for his powerful meditation - THE OPTIMIST CREED - and for his other classics of spiritual living - but no single volume has collected his greatest writings. Here, at last, is a long-overdue anthology that makes his foundational writings available to the countless readers who already know his name and work.
In his now famous maxim, Larson encouraged early twentieth-century readers to embrace an “attitude of gratitude.” Yet Larson's vision went far beyond mushy or feel-good nostrums. Like no one else of his day, the groundbreaking writer understood the metaphysical and psychological dimensions of grateful living. Affirmative thought, Larson reasoned, sets in motion unseen forces, both spiritual and psychical and aids in manifesting our desires.
In our time, Larson's message is as fresh and radical as ever. THE OPTIMIST CREED features complete editions of his most deeply affecting works, each redesigned and reset. It contains: “The Pathway of Roses,” “Your Forces and How to Use Them” (the 1912 work that features his “Optimist Creed”), “Mastery of Self,” “The Ideal Made Real,” and “Just Be Glad.”

Alien abduction poltergeist attacks incubi succubi split and multiple personalities possessions precognition spontaneous combustion - the list of phenomena not just unexplained but ignored by mainstream science seems endless.

OTHER SIDE OF BLUE What We Learn Through Overcoming Adversity Michael Colling
THE OTHER SIDE OF BLUE is a moving anthology of 20 autobiographical stories that aim to provide hope for those struggling with tough issues in their lives. The stories span many daunting and complex challenges, from surviving childhood sexual and physical abuse, to family breakdowns, ‘coming out,’ dealing with depression and coping with the death of a loved one. This book has been compiled to offer hope to those in their early adult years – particularly people between 18 and 30 years of age. Although the large majority of stories are from everyday people, a number of well-known personalities – including Big Brother housemate, Jess Hardy, Chris Cheney from the chart-topping rock band ‘The Living End’ and Olympic athlete, Kyle van der Kuyp – have also shared their experiences, illustrating that hardships spare no one.
What happens when a suicide crosses over? Where do they go? Readers, I crossed over into the spirit world 25 years ago, having ended my life prematurely by what you call on Earth suicide. You would call me a suicide victim. I have a lot to say, having been here now for this long and having searched all of that time for someone there on Earth to communicate with. Someone to bring back the knowledge that I now have access to and share that knowledge with persons, like the person I was while alive, who have lost hope and feel so heavily burdened by life that only death itself seems like a solution. I also have much that I want to share with families of persons who have ended their lives early. While I reside now, here in the spirit realm, I have a greater understanding of the mechanics of life on Earth. Why we choose to come down to Earth to begin with, how we allow ourselves to get caught up in the world of illusion, and how we can easily lose touch with the true essence of who we really are while living on the Earth; which is what happens all too often and escalates to the point of a desire to end life before its perfect time. This is the collection of information from the spirit known as George who ended his life early while on the Earth and seeks to impart a greater knowledge to others who are contemplating the same fate.
OUR BABIES HAVE DIED Stories of Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Neonatal Death SANDS Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support
No one can be prepared for the immensity of grief that follows the death of a baby.
OUR BABIES HAVE DIED contains the stories of parents who have unselfishly shared them so that others may benefit. It has been the experience of SANDS (Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Support Inc) that parents of babies who have died wish to talk about their experiences, listen to those of others and confirm that the experiences they endure after the death of their child are often common amongst other bereaved parents. These stories are, at times heartbreaking, brave and sensitive, whilst showing an insight into the strength of the human condition.
As one father writes:
'It has been fifty-nine days since we had our hello and our sad goodbye. My lovely wife, whom I adore and for whom I now have an even stronger sense of admiration due to her strength and courage, has been through hell and has not come back yet, but 'they' do say time heals.'
OUR SECRET RULES Why We Do the Things We Do Jordon Weiss
We all live our lives according to a set of rules. Each of our behaviors is regulated by a rule. Some rules we know. Others, however, are unconscious. These are our secret rules. When we do things that go against these secret rules, we experience stress, anxiety, apprehension, and emotional exhaustion--and we never know why. That is, until now. In this book, Dr. Jordan Weiss offers a unique system that uncovers our most secret rules. The book begins by explaining the important roles that conscious and unconscious rules play in our daily existence. Subsequent chapters focus on key areas of our lives--money, religion, gender identification, work, friendships, health, power, personal statement, marriage, and sex. Each chapter contains challenging questions meant to be answered by the reader. The answers offered provide a personal look at how we would behave when faced with specific situations. At the end of each chapter is an analysis of potential answers that is designed to reveal the extent of our secret rules. OUR SECRET RULES concludes by explaining how we can use our newly gained insights to improve the way we feel about ourselves and others. For once we know our rules, we can then learn to live within them, or we can attempt to change them.
OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCES How to Have Them and What to Expect Robert Peterson
Foreword by Charles Tart
Throughout history, people have reported spiritual experiences that we now identify as out-of-body experiences or OBEs. In recent times, modern researchers like Robert Monroe have pioneered the scientific study and practice of OBEs. Increasingly, people are remembering spontaneous OBEs, especially from early childhood. Also, OBEs are a typical feature of near-death experiences and have been described as beautiful, painless and ecstatic.
This is the comprehensive manual for inducing out of body experiences and managing the experience Peterson not only explores the stages of his own development, but, also, concludes each chapter with a specific exercise that takes you to the next level.
From wiggling out of your body for the first time (the author did a back flip his first time) to travelling through other realms and dealing with your "encounters,", this is one of the most practical, step-by-step guides to OBEs available. He clearly demonstrates out this consciousness-expanding experience is accessible to anyone willing to make the leap into the great beyond.
